In Reply to: RE: What disgusts me is finessing the fact that indeed slavery hung in the balance in this war. posted by troutbum on June 13, 2020 at 13:34:52
I wondered when this meme would be trotted out ... see link
'when is the last time you heard an Irishman bitching and moaning about how the world owes them a living?" The "Irish slaves" meme is a subset of the "white slavery" contemporary discourse which emphasizes class over race and is fueled by a potent cocktail of bad history, false equivalence, conspiracy theories, and reductionist fallacies'
btw, are you a college student
Let me bow out of this saying I abhor the concept of slavery, but will never sit back and condemn all southerners during the Civil War.
AS Davy Crockett famously said..."You can all go to hell, I'm going to Texas".
Be well yourself.
I guess I'd better go back to college as I have no idea what you said.
really? you brought up the 'Irish slaves' meme so I linked to where that meme comes from and why ... here's another excerpt:
'Such is the case with the myth of "Irish slaves," an ahistorical reimagining of real events weaponized by racists and conspiracy theorists before the Web and now reaching vast new audiences online'
maybe click on the link and, as you said, 'help expand your knowledge'
but have a good day
uh oh ... the curse of the incel!
so you didn't read the link?
and here I thought we would eventually discuss Guy Fawkes
but thank you for your considered and erudite response
